It’s time to do the totting up of number of eggs laid in September . . . and to say that Miss Moneypenny continued her broody silliness throughout the entire month. Not a single egg from her! However, she’s now back out with the others, scratching and pecking, so I’m hopeful we’ll have some of her darker brown-shelled eggs to look forward to in October.
Luckily, Miranda and Miss Marple have been laying fairly consistently. 23 eggs from Miss Marple and 25 eggs from Miranda – a total of 48 eggs this month which is more than we are able to eat. I think I need to make a cake this afternoon, and take half a dozen of the freshest ones round to one of the neighbours.
